Welcome to the Conservancy —

Home/About Us Page


large horsesWelcome to our website! We are a 501(c)3 non-profit and the purpose of our organization is to promote seahorse keeping and build a club of people who keep seahorses in home aquariums and people who love these beautiful and friendly fish.


We have a small breeding operation of happy seahorses, and we would like to eventually create and restore the seagrass habitat that they and other marine life depend on. We believe that the more people see seahorses in home or public aquariums or online, the more they will become aware of their habitat and care about and participate in rebuilding and protecting it.

Our main goals are:
1. Educating aspiring seahorse keepers
2. Breeding seahorses as an alternative to collecting them out of the wild
3. Promoting awareness of local underwater habitats
4. Restoring local habitats and reintroducing seahorses, when necessary, to Eastern U.S. coastal waters

Our main activities, besides breeding, include fun educational videos, active discussion boards, and other social media. We also hope to organize teams to plant seagrass in local waterways.

We sell seahorses and provide ongoing technical support to our customers and club members. Our happy seahorses can be found in public aquariums such as Center in the Square in Roanoke, VA.

Please contact us with any questions or comments – we love to talk about seahorses!
